LEONARDO PASSERI

ARTIST

A pictorial and iconographic compendium of literature, philosophy and history.

This is the artistic work of Leonardo Passeri, who raises his research into curiosity in many cultural areas: from science fiction to early twentieth century psychology; from social and political philosophy to historical events; from admiration for art to fashion.

The impact of new science and technology on society acts as a file rouge between his works; so new living being come to life for thought and form, human beings, aliens, cyborgs and mutants that animate individual and collective events in a future that can still be changed. A fantastic story in which new unexplored worlds are inhabited by growing civilizations, and characterized by late-medieval urbanization.

“Urbenica”
An extract by Alessandra Totta

Perfectly in tune with the intent of Visionary Art to look beyond the multiple ways of reconstructing and representing the world, we find the painting by Leonardo Passeri, Urbenica. A timeline rich in history, battles and faiths.

No particular date or event, only the clear reference to human action.

Seven modern illuminated pages of graphic mould waiting to be broken down, ready to create new visions and points of view. From chaos to urbanization, from simple faith to war.

Through these elements, in a way characterized by a non-dimension, it traces the evolution mystery and the human being engaged in an incessant war against himself and against those high and wise celestial spheres that he so much loves and condemns.

Leonardo Passeri
